The Dig (2021) S: Carey Mulligan, Ralph Fiennes, Lily James - Netflix




As WWII looms, a wealthy widow (Carey Mulligan) hires an amateur archaeologist (Ralph Fiennes) to excavate the burial mounds on her estate. When they make a historic discovery, the echoes of Britain's past resonate in the face of its uncertain future‎.

THE DIG stars Carey Mulligan, Ralph Fiennes, Lily James, Johnny Flynn, Ben Chaplin, and Ken Scott.

In Select Theaters January 15 and on Netflix January 29.

I thought this was very good. Both Mulligan and Fiennes gave wonderful performances. Lily James was cute, as usual, but her storyline felt a tad shoehorned in. It seemed to work out well in the end though.

It started out a little shaky where the pacing and editing felt off but it seemed to find its footing about 20 minutes in. Oddly, it felt both methodically paced and brisk at the same time.

I also would have preferred that we learned a little more about the history of their find as we kept hearing about it being Anglo-Saxon but we never learn much beyond that.

I thought a lot of the cinematography was stunning and they did a good job of making the dig site look and feel authentic.

Overall:

I was hoping for a documentary on how to find the g-spot.

I thought it was good, but it didn’t strike me the way it did my friend who raved about it.

I heard Nicole Kidman was attached to the project before Mulligan came in. I like Kidman but she seems to be everywhere these days so I’m fine with Mulligan,

Thought it was good, too. But I wouldn't call it rave-able.
